Meeting stringent environmental standards according to the ISO, the hotel has recently been awarded a carbon-neutral footprint. The commitment to sustainability extends from minimal emissions in rooms and suites to on-site restaurants serving thoughtful menus, including locally sourced ingredients at Berliner Stube and a certified organic breakfast at Parksalon. The Maluna Spa features a circular pool, sauna with cold plunge pools and splash showers and marine-based products from Thalgo for Thalasso. The overall feel blends clean design inside with a quiet parkside setting.
In the Area
The large, business-friendly Steigenberger attracts leisure guests for its versatile location in the western part of Berlin—it overlooks the quiet Los-Angeles-Platz private park but sits just a block down from the “Ku-damm”, or Kurfurstendamm, Berlin’s version of the Champs-Elysees, with Chanel, Gucci, YSL and more lining the avenue. Plus, there’s no shortage of cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries to explore in the immediate neighborhood. Sights within easy reach include the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and Zoo Berlin, while famed Tiergarten to the east offers more green space in a spectacular setting smack-dab in the urban center.
How to Get There
My fourth or fifth stay at the Steigenberger Berlin. Cannot beat the location in this particular area, at a very quiet square close to Breitscheidplatz with the Augsburger Strasse U-bahn just at the corner and several good restaurants in the neighborhood. The hotel has a distinct 1970/80ies feeling, with a spacious dark wood reception area and a lounge bar - more US than Europe. The hotel also previously had a "Club" floor with a club room serving snacks and drinks in the evening and continental breakfast in the morning - my original reason for choosing the hotel at my first stay. This is now removed and replaced with a gym. This time, the front desk staff was efficient but a bit brusque. My first room was large with good views, but smelled of cigarette smoke. Since it was carpeted with heavy drapes I asked to switch, got a smaller room at a low floor with views to other rooms across a small patio. Bathroom small, dark and in need of refurbishment. Good bed and very quiet. Still, the experience left me with the impression of the hotel as slightly tired grand old lady.
We visited Berlin for the weekend with the dog and two teen kids. we had two rooms one was a suite. The rooms were on the same floor. Our boys room had problems with the internet and after attempting to fix it they were quickly moved to a new room. the pool and relaxing sitting area was amazing. Spa treatments were great. had not problem getting in. Staff was helpful. our dog was given treats in the room. the location is across from a parking garage that was a few dollars cheaper a day. not may areas to take the dog out to void. we did find a good area about three blocks down. this hotel is close one block from a hop on hop off pick up spoke. The breakfast was amazing. will come back.
Very nice hotel, excellent place with wonderful garden, good location and very nice and clean room. around are some good restaurants
nice bath room and big leaving room. I recommend it for a pleasure trip for couple.
The rooms were okay without being anything special, the bathroom was below par, the wifi internet slow and the TV was old, reception poor and no english speaking channels.
Breakfast was well catered and a good selection on offer. The hotel is centrally located only a short stroll to the main shopping areas. There is plenty of eateries close by.
the biggest problem we had was internet connection - very unreliable. Hard to connect, would not last more that 5 min and then will not reconnect for hours. Tried unsuccessfully to connect even at 4-5am - which would not be be busiest time..... Created big issues on business trip when work had to be done...
